For those after essential Japanese learning to squeeze into a hectic lifestyle.

This romanized version of Japanese for Busy People 1 is ideal for those looking for a simple, quick and thorough method to learn everyday conversational Japanese, covering a considerable range of real life scenarios and encounters in short, informative exercises. With all Japanese in the book written in romanised characters or given a romanised translation, this textbook is made to ease people who aren't used to kana characters into a good basic level of spoken Japanese and comprehension, so they can tackle Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji with more confidence when the time arises. Split into 11 chapters that cover 25 lessons, each chapter is given a clear and relatable theme to introduce you to Japanese lifestyle and culture and shows you how the language shapes around it, from greetings, to actions and expressions of interest. Essential vocabulary and easy to understand grammar comes in gradual doses, with versatile methods to practice and revise over brief periods. With an additional CD, covering phrases and dialogues found in the book alongside further exercises, you have access to a natural speed and flow of Japanese conversation, that can help you with listening and pronunciation at home or on the go.
